Marxism Today was launched on August 22nd, 2010, that makes this week our first anniversary. We turn 1 year old today, and begin our second season.
A review of our first season:

We’ve addressed many topics: exploitation, dialectics, materialism, alienation, and more.
If I could pick a theme to sum-up the episodes from our first season, I’d call them “Marxist standards.”
Right now my goal is to make season two geared toward modern day issues and how we can use Marxism to approach them. Of course the episodes are not planned out and we may end up taking a different direction – only time will tell.
Over the past year our video format has changed twice. First we had just a static image for the entire video – which didn’t add much. Then we moved toward a combo of words and images – in a rather crude fashion. Currently we use a power point style presentation that provides slides throughout the video – this could still change, because I don’t think it’s the perfect format for us, but I don’t know what else is.
Finally I’d like to thank all of the people who have worked with me to put this together, along with those who have inspired me to dive into this work, and also those who have visited, listened, and commented. Knowing my work has helped others understand something, or has inspired debate and discussion is a great reward, so thank you.
